Voice Over Testimonials

Anyone who knows John and his work ethic will know what an incredibly hard working and creative guy he is. He ‘sparked’ a passion in me for radio and voice over work that I didn’t even know existed!

CBeebies - Harriet Blackamore - Executive Media Producer

I feel incredibly lucky to work alongside John.   As a team we are able to praise and criticise each other’s work, resulting in us producing better content and still delivering on time.

BBC - Gayle Mace - Sound Producer

It’s common to see John 'take off his coat' when he should be heading home and help someone working against the clock or struggling to get an audio package just right - his selflessness, generosity and enthusiasm for what we do really knows no bounds.

Freelance - Kevin Fernihough - Radio Presenter
